I’m at the point in my career where I can charge a decent amount of money for the creative services that I provide. I’m usually the one generating proposals and quotes. I’m trying to figure out how to be profitable while still serving our perfect client (not corporations). But I get bored really fast when it
I listened to a TED Radio Hour podcast on Sunday while I was driving with my sister. It was about beauty and brought up the idea that maybe there are beautiful things in this world so we don’t destroy it all. I can’t stop thinking about it. Interestingly enough, I feel like I avoid creating beautiful
You guys, letterpress is amazing. And don’t act like you don’t know what letterpress is! I see you pinning that stuff all up on your boards! When I first moved here to Columbus, I didn’t know anyone (besides Adam). Finding fun things to do with new friends can be challenging but I vividly remember the day
When you write a blog, you know you’re obviously talking about yourself a bit more than someone who doesn’t blog. I mean…it’s weird when you think about it. This post felt specifically Allie-y. But I’m excited about some things and thought they’d be worth sharing: We just launched Liz’s new site this AM! Check it
That’s me. At an event. Drinking champagne and apple cider bourbon at the same time. Wearing heels and rocking a blowout. Also mid-sentence, I’m sure. But let’s be real, pals. It’s really like this:
Some snapshots from our weekend at Weapons of Mass Creation Fest. It was awesome. Read what we learned here. Oh and our friend Brandon KILLED it as a speaker. Seriously proud.
Just a little love for Liz Lemon today. Happy Thursday, folks! *Photo + type by yours truly.
I’m excited to unveil Boldly Chic Events‘ new site that I designed! We’ve been working on it since Christmas and it’s so exciting to finally share! From the slideshows to the custom watercolor background to the typography…I’m completely smitten (and 100% biased). Lori at Boldly Chic Events is so amazing to work with. If you
This week has felt risky, daring and sometimes overwhelming. But you can imaging not daring to dare? *Handwritten doodle made using my Intuos4 on an extremely blurry photo of NYC
You can now buy my doodles on Society6. Hope to be adding more this week! It’s a great way for me to sell some of my random stuff without investing the money into printing/paper and the time into shipping. Once you put in your order – Society6 does it all for me! Right now I’m
The idea of recapping WMC Fest 3 (located in Cleveland, Ohio) is completely overwhelming. As I write this I really have absolutely no idea how I will accomplish this task but I’m going to try my best. I think posting this recap will not only benefit all those who didn’t get to attend (at all or
Since I am extremely busy with freelance work right now WHILE simultaneously trying to relax this week in honor of my 25th birthday (it’s tomorrow…if you were wondering), my blog posts aren’t going to be epic. Today I thought I’d share some of the projects I’ve completed and other collaborations I’m excited to be a
I painted color circles last weekend. The top right circle is my favorite. What do you like to do in your free time?
We recently wrapped up a project for Betty’s Columbus 10th Anniversary where I was able to work with some AMAZINGLY talented people. Because of so many peoples’ effort, talents, and generosity we created this amazing calendar. I recently realized that I don’t post a lot about design here on my blog as much. I want
In honor of Thanksgiving, I’d like to say THANK YOU to all who read my blog and leave sweet comments. When I started blogging back in 2009, I vowed to only blog because I loved it. Not because of sponsors, money, statistics, or self-promotion. I feel proud to say that I’ve kept that promise to
Holy design crush. I haven’t seen work that makes me this giddy in a LONG time. Check out A Friend of Mine and all their amazing work.
I eat local. I shop local. I even design local. I love all my clients (whether they live near or far) but working with those that are local feels like you’re just helping a neighbor. I’ve been able to work with Andrea from Food Embrace, Megan from The Bibliophiles & Beverages Society, Mark from The
My little paper shop is now online! Click here to take a peek and maybe make a purchase? I hope to be adding to this store regularly with prints and stationery so bookmark it! There’s also a badge over on my sidebar too. I decided to re-launch my store through Big Cartel. It’s easier to
